Paywalls a growing trend for news organisations

Fairfax Media Australia is jumping on the paywall bandwagon, part of a growing trend among online news organisations.
The company’s new business model will mean website users will soon be paying for online content.
Media commentator Dr Gavin Ellis says online advertising earnings are “significantly less” than those in newspapers.
Dr Ellis says people are used to having access to free news online, so organisations may push more toward specific paid versions.
“Look for a move toward tablet or iPad subscription models,” he says.
